COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has been said by many brew masters, ďwater makes the beer.Ē We canít help but agree. This refreshingly light lager is brewed with 25,000 year old iceberg water harvested from Newfoundlandís awe-inspiring icebergs which offer some of the purest water on earth. Incredibly crisp and refreshing light North American style lager. Winner of a bronze medal in the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards íNorth American Style -Premium Lagerí

Poured a yellow straw color from a blue glass bottle (only reason I gave it a 2 for appearance). This beer really didnít taste too different from any of the other pale lagers from the big boys. It is kind of expensive for what it is. It poured with also no head and had very little aroma. I suppose this could be refreshing if served as cold as an iceberg on a hot day.

Cimbasso (709) - - MAY 10, 2016
Sampled on draught at the bar at St. John's International Airport. Served extremely cold in the North American tradition. A light golden colour with a white head. Highly carbonated with some grain aromas. The taste is of sweet malts with a hint of straw followed by a mixture of mild cardboard and bubblegum flavours. Quite clean tasting and refreshing but little depth to the flavour.

Aroma of mild malt. Pale yellow color. Starts off sort of sweetish, finishes sort of skunky. Yep thats it.

probstblueribbon (3700) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
341 ml bottle from a liquor store in Newfoundland via my parents, served cold in a small shaker glass. Faintly metallic with light grainy sweetness, a little bread, faintly sour, possibly a little skunk. Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Sweet grains, faint noble hops, still a touch...sour?; basically dry, low bitterness, slightly sweet, grainy finish. Beatty bottle and concept. Boring beer.

2014-08-15. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head fades. Aroma is sweet, with an earthy mushroom like character. Flavour is sweetish, simple pale malt. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty dull, but not terrible. Interesting to try. Bottle from NFLD via my parents

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle, shared by jercraigs CGBD 2014. Pretty well up there (or should I say down there?) with the worst of the macro Pale Lagers out there. Poured a pale light straw body with a minimal fizzy white head. Nose is cardboard, corn, straw, and maybe a touch of pale malt. The flavor is much the same, what little of it there is. Not convinced this is old, I just think the cardboard flavor is the natural taste of this. Light bodied and fizzy with a watery finish. Another awful Pale Lager, but it is a Province tick.
